Bhopal: A 29-year-old woman was seriously injured when two men allegedly pushed her out of a moving train after robbing her valuables and cellphone near Karouda railway station in Madhya Pradesh, police said. The woman, identified as Rati Tripathi working with a private company in Delhi, sustained serious head and facial injuries and has been admitted to a hospital here, they said.

The matter came to light when Rati's mother Mithya Tripathi and brother Adhyatmik did not find her in the Malwa Express' S-7 coach, which she reportedly boarded from Delhi, at Ujjain on Wednesday where the three were supposed to meet to visit the Mahakaleshwar temple there.

Rati's mother and brother, who had already reached Ujjain from Kanpur, enquired from the train passengers who told them that two persons allegedly threw her out of the moving train following a dispute over sitting on her berth between Lalitpur and Karouda stations near Bina in MP.

The woman's mother and brother then rushed to Bina railway station where police told them that a woman was found on the tracks and referred to Bhopal following which they reached the state capital and found her at a private hospital in an unconscious state.

Rati's mother alleged that the unidentified persons robbed her purse, mobile phone, chain and earrings. Though fellow passengers raised an alarm, the security personnel onboard the train did not take any action, she further alleged.

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Babulal Gaur on Thursday visited the hospital here to meet the woman's family members and assured them that the culprits would be caught soon. A reward of Rs 10,000 has also been announced for any concrete information about the culprits, Director General of Police (DG) Railways, Maithli Sharan Gupt told PTI.

The matter is under investigation, he said. Railway SP Awdhesh Goswami has reached Bina to probe the matter. Police have also issued a sketch of one of the suspects based on information provided by the passengers.
